After completely dismantaling the vacuum, and cleaning and then replacing all the filters, the Turbo Brush, extension wand, crevice tool still don't have any suction, and then when I'm vacuuming and pulling it back towards me, it makes ripple type things in the carpet, it doesnt make the lines in the carpet like it were actually be cleaned. What else can I do or look at to fix this problem?

Re: no suction, filters have been cleaned/replaced!
Sounds like you most likely have two problems:
1: There is a clog somewhere in your air pathway, which is why you're not getting any suction at the end of the hose. Try disconnecting the hose from the machine and checking inside the various openings for clogs.
2: Your belt needs replacement, which is why you're not getting the lines on the carpet. Remove the baseplate on the underside of the machine and remove the brushroll, put the new belt around the motor pulley and replace the brushroll. Note that even if your old belt appears fine, it's probably stretched to the point that it's not agitating properly.
Otherwise, it is entirely possible that your motor is shot and is not able to effectively move air. This is very common with bagless vacuums, which is why the average lifespan of bagless vacuums is 1.5-3 years.

There are a few potential solutions you should try to fix the suction of your Electrolux vacuum. The first thing you should check is the height of your brush-roll. Your height setting may be too high for the type of floor you are vacuuming. Raise or lower your brush-roll depending on if you are vacuuming on carpet, tile, or wood surfaces.The second thing you should check is the vacuum bag. If it is full your vacuum can lose suction. This is simply remedied by replacing it with a new and clean bag. The third reason for a loss of suction is your hose is clogged. Check the hose for debris or foreign objects that may be obstructing the flow of air in the vacuum. The last potential reason for your vacuum losing suction could be the brush-roll itself. If it is clogged with dirt and hair it may not be spinning and not picking anything up. Check to see the condition of your brush-roll. If it is clogged remove the debris.

It takes a lot of suction to spin the brush. First make sure the suction is good. Make sure the bag and/ or filters are clean. Replace if necessary. Most turbo tools can be opened up to clean. Most have a lever that allows you to open it up to clean hair, dust, etc from the fan and fan shaft and other areas inside the tool. The tools pick up a lot of hair and debris and some will wrap around the moving parts building pup to the point the brush will not spin fast enough. The same thing can happen to the brush roll on your vacuum so be sure to clean it too and replace the belt at least twice per year.
The belt and brush have nothing to do with the suction. The impeller on the motor creates negative pressure which results in a vacuum. ( or suction ) Many newer vacuums have as many as 4 filters. if any become completely clogged, the performance drops to nil. Start at the debris exit and work backwards. As a bagless, pulling the dirt canister out and removing the main filter is a good start. Most filters can be "tapped" clean and some are washable. after pulling out the filter, look where the passage way enters the filter chamber. Is it clogged? There is usually a secondary filter, which actually is set in a previous stage to the filter you just pulled out. Its main purpose if to catch hair, small nails, wire, and other material that could damage the more visible filter. If this filter is clogged then that will explain the loss of suction. Pull it out and clean it. An exhaust filter is located typically above the motor. Its purpose is to prevent fine particles from being blown about. It should be cleaned as well. With the filters clean and the hoses and passage ways clear, you should be good to go. Good Luck!
1. Remove dust collector compartment/s. Look for any filters, remove and clean. (Make sure you DO NOT clean filters with water.) Take filter/s outside and "slap" them against a flat surface. (Filter will be very messy to clean)
2. Replace all filters and compartments.
3. Also try using a wire hanger and try to reach as far down the hose as possible to remove any obstruction/s.
Note: Clean vacuum filters frequently to ensure proper suction.
Hi there, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . I have fixed hundreds of Dyson DC07 vacuum cleaners over the last few years and i would say there are 2 possible causes for the loss of suction. 1st is that the filter looks clean but is actually worn anyway. The way to tell is remove the washable filter from your vacuum cleaner. Take out the foam insert this seems to last longer that the other part. Hold up the plastic cage to the light and look at the white part (well it used to be white anyway) you should be able to see light through it. If you cant see through it you need to replace it. Here is a link to that filter for purchase . To verify this is the problem just run the vacuum without the filter in you should see an improvement - note do not actually **** up material the filter is there for a good reason. 2nd problem is that you have a blockage in your radix assembly. If you take off the whole dirt bin and feel the suction on the upright part where the chamber joins the vacuum (basically bypassing the radix) if there is good suction here you will either need to replace the cyclone top or dismantle and clean it. (it is very difficult to clean as it doesn't completely dissassemble) Hope this helps - If you want more help send me a message HAPPY VACUUMING ! :)
